    Hey I've been on Concerta for a while now but I was curious as to how well other ADHD meds work. Anyone been on more than one and have anything to say about the differences and stuff?

    well, there are some differences in all the meds, such as ritalin, which you take over a period of time and works like prilosec in that it takes a while to build up to working.

    Adderall is the only actual prn or as needed adhd medicine.

    Strattera works in a completely different way as the others as it isnt an amphetamine and also takes about a week to actually get working. But like most drugs, its all person specific.

    But, working in a pharmacy, i have learned that adhd is a cop out excuse for why kids fail

    "danny only got a b"
    "well, he must be adhd, put him on adderall"

    I have add.

    adhd probably.

    however, the school system is so substandard it’s ridiculous.

    add meds are neurological pathway changing meds. I like my neurological pathways. im just more intelligent and kind of hyper than the school system was equipped to deal with. so instead i learned about gangs, drugs, and graffiti. far more interesting than geometry and "american" history.

    i fucking hated p.e.

    now i smoke a mild amount of marijauna to treat it...

    But those meds are nothing more than pharmaceutical speed.

    yes, that is all they are. we have a doctor on campus that gives adderall xr to almost anyone who wants it, she even gives out a free coupon that lets you get it for free, i mean, come on,,,,this is not the way to treat a problem...

    geomotry is interesting. i take that back.

    american schools are shit. its a giant setup for the prison system. they bore the kids, understaff the schools, the kids themselfes are ridiculously harsh to eachother....the resources suck and they dont even prepare you for a college level education. then they make a ton of money selling speed as medicine for it.

    how true, the doctor gives out the free coupon knowing that after the first month, tht kids will get addicted, which is why shire distributes the free one time coupons. I know a grip of kids addicted to that stuff...

    The way i see it these medications are like brainwash used to mold kids who may not be conforming in the right way. But really u dont need it. Society has a false reality about how you should act and live that sometimes can never be achieved and when some kids cant meet up to these false standards they are diagnosed with disorders. The same reason so many sdults are on anti-depressants. They cant meet up to standards they see on tv so they may get depressed and even do insane things and act crazy so they end up taking medication.

    That is just my philosophy dealing with things like that.

    i didnt know this, but in depression there are stages and of course on of the stages is suicidal thoughts. well, when you get on an anti-depressant, it brings you back up through all the stages, which is why people still kill themselves, because they are coming back up through that stage....

    I have ADHD. I should probably be on something, but it is not worth it.

    Wow, working in a pharmacy. That's some education you've got right there.... enough to make a judgement contradicting research done by hundreds (perhaps thousands?) of people with doctrate level educations :rolleyes:

    Diagnosing ADHD is primarily a clinical judgement, or a result of a TOVA analysis. If your doctor is really over prescribing, you should report her to the APA.
